A new, authorized study group for Hontai Hakkei Ryu Aikijujutsu is forming in Massachusetts, under the supervision of Salahuddin Muh'min Muhammad, the head of the system. The group, Hontai Hakkei Ryu Aikijujutsu of New England, is currently considering training locations in Boston's Chinatown or in another easily accessible community within the Metro Boston area.

Hontai Hakkei Ryu is a system founded by the late Okazaki Shuji, who was a longtime Daito-ryu student of Yoshida Kotaro (a direct student of Takeda Sokaku); a judoka who explored Kosen judo and Fusen Ryu; and also a student of a number of koryu, notably Takagi-ryu and Kukishin-ryu. Salahuddin Muhammad is the sole teacher of the art in North America. He is based in Philadelphia, with study groups in New York City and several other locations.
